Multi-cloud management solutions allow enterprises to manage multiple cloud services under a single heterogeneous architecture, such as SaaS, PaaS, and IaaS. Multi-cloud management allows enterprise-class applications to be deployed and managed across public, private, and hybrid clouds. It also allows businesses to simplify cloud storage management while strengthening security. The continued rollout of high-speed 5G networks; advances in the latest technologies, including AI and machine learning; and increased flexibility offered by the latest cloud computing technologies are expected to drive the industry growth over the forecast period.

Concerns over the reliability of single cloud and vendor lock-in situations, a growing predisposition toward price-sensitive cloud installations, and the rising pressure to ensure compliance with various data security and privacy protection regulations are prompting enterprises to opt for multi-cloud management solutions. Multi-cloud management gives end-users greater bargaining power as end-users get in a better position to switch between different providers rather than relying on a single provider. In addition, end-users can utilize multi-cloud management to distribute their workload across various clouds and ensure more flexibility in data deployment.

As such, multi-cloud management typically helps in avoiding a vendor lock-in situation and allows end-users to switch easily between vendors. The outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic has been driving the adoption of multi-cloud management solutions. Given the lockdowns and restrictions imposed by various governments in the wake of the pandemic outbreak, organizations that have already shifted their workloads to the cloud are enjoying a winning edge over their competitors. Effective cloud management allows employees to operate remotely without compromising productivity. Apart from deploying dedicated solutions to help their employees in working remotely, organizations have also cooperated with companies, such as Microsoft, AWS, and Zscaler, to improve agility while servicing clients and ensuring adequate data security in the wake of the uncertainties brought up by the pandemic.

However, a looming lack of adequate expertise and the challenges associated with redesigning the network for the cloud are some of the factors expected to restrain the industry's growth. The complex deployment structure of multi-cloud environments and the complexities involved in establishing and managing multi-cloud environments are emerging as the major market restraints. Redesigning the networks from on-premises to cloud-based deployment also calls for significant upfront investments. This can discourage SMEs from opting for multi-cloud management solutions due to budget and resource constraints. Businesses would also have to address several concerns, including those over the network architecture, before migrating to a cloud-based infrastructure and multi-cloud environments.

Solution Insights

The cloud automation segment accounted for the largest market share of over 25.25% in 2022. Companies are increasingly opting for automation to help them manage various private, public, and hybrid cloud environments with limited human resources. Artificial Intelligence (AI) and Machine Learning (ML) are expected to play a significant role in cloud automation decision-making, including extensive log analysis. Systems and solutions based on AI and ML can analyze large volumes of logging data and search for patterns. The insights obtained can be used to predict the failure of server components or application breakdowns. In other words, cloud automation can help considerably in capacity planning by facilitating better forecasting of infrastructure requirements.

Hardships in governance stemming from a multi-cloud approach also prompt businesses to opt for cloud automation to ease the management of their public, private, and hybrid cloud systems. For instance, looking forward to the future, cloud automation can accommodate dashboards, allowing engineers to view all their disparate cloud services in a single window. The adoption of cloud automation is also expected to gain traction as organizations opt for analytics services and other services to support cloud solutions. Moreover, increasing ML capabilities to analyze more contingent data can benefit cloud automation significantly.

Enterprise Size Insights

The large enterprise segment accounted for the largest share of over 57.80% of the overall revenue in 2022. A multi-cloud strategy allows businesses to choose from various cloud services and opt for those suiting their specific requirements. The ML capabilities of multi-cloud environments can potentially aid large data transfers, thereby driving the demand for multi-cloud management solutions from large enterprises. Multi-cloud adoption provides alternative options for enterprises rather than relying on the infrastructure, add-on services, and pricing quoted by a single cloud provider. Moreover, enterprises can also select a cloud provider with data centers closer to their clients to reduce latency and improve performance indicators.

Multi-cloud allows businesses to utilize a variety of cloud technologies for a variety of applications. With a multi-cloud approach, large organizations can selectively distribute their heavy workloads across several computing infrastructures. Such an approach can help save costs, encourage innovation, strengthen disaster management, ensure business continuity, and increase efficiency. Multi-cloud strategies bring IT resources closer to customers, resulting in lower latency and fewer dropouts. As the number of cloud providers continues to grow and the IT environment continues to get more complex, the competition in the industry is intensifying, subsequently prompting companies to employ the latest technologies to defend their position in the industry and expand further.

End-use Insights

The BFSI end-use segment accounted for the largest share of over 24.95% of the overall revenue in 2022. Banking organizations opt for cloud-based installations to enhance operational efficiency and ensure prompt customer service. BFSI companies typically prefer multi-cloud environments so that the other cloud can take over in the event of a failure of one cloud. Vendors are providing cloud solutions for financial institutions to secure their settings and workloads and ensure regulatory compliance highly. For instance, in September 2021, Temenos collaborated with International Business Machines Corp. to accelerate hybrid cloud adoption in the BFSI industry.
